St. Mary's Glacier

We're spending the Memorial Day weekend at the St. Mary's Glacier Bed & Breakfast Lodge. It's beautiful here, if a little remote. This log house is a twenty minute drive north of Idaho Springs at an elevation of 10,500 feet and the glacier's 300 feet higher. You ford a (very small) stream to get here.

It's Springtime in the Rockies, with snow flurries off and on all day, interspersed with sunny periods. It only accumulated in sheltered areas until dusk, when the flurries became a steady snowfall. We drove down to Idaho Springs to browse around the shops, have lunch, and pick up some groceries to bring back to St. Mary's. We cooked a pizza for dinner, then went for a walk in the snow.
